Gods and Generals- Part 1

I was at a well known local amusement park recently. I was surprised I could enjoy some of those rides at 'this' age. It later occured to me that adrenaline rushes are no respecters of age! I found myself screaming like a child, and had the joy of watching full grown men and women also screaming like little girls..

Funny thing is, the little girls weren't party to the screaming. They were too busy crying their hearts out..

Alright, enough of the lollygagging; Ahem!

One is a gift, the other a rank.

One is a state of being, the other a being of the state..

I would rather be the one, than be the other...

One is original, the other a copy....

One is absolute, the other subjective...

The ability to look into situations and see their outcome, as well as have some control and ability to determine the outcome...now that's something I'd like to do regularly.

To be continued....

Biting the hand that feeds you...

It's been a while, but I just had to talk about this..

What's with all the people eating pastors alive over 'allegations' of unbecoming behaviour? Here are some thoughts..

1. If you're foolish enough to give in to fleshly desires, don't be careless enough not to cover your tracks.

2. Sometimes journalists and the public have a short memory of religious leaders' track records.

3. You are bound to become famous overnight by being tagged as 'gay.' This also works for your accusers. it could as well be a win-win situation.

4. God and the Gospel can defend themselves. Why do you think the Bible is still the world's best seller up to now?

5. It should be declared illegal for church leaders to wash their dirty linen in public. The Bible actually discourages such behaviour.

There should be some level of commitment and loyalty exhibited by the christian folk, and not just throwing useless comments here and there. It's not about who's right or wrong, but the reaction garnered by the masses about such a trivial issue.

Sayonara to all the pretenders, and Hurrah to the loyal..
